FRANKFORT, Ky. (12/21/12) – The following is a Letter to the Editor from Senator Dorsey Ridley.
The retirement of the honorable Mike Cherry from the Kentucky General Assembly is NOT a “sunset scene” moment, but merely a change of scenery for an ever-evolving public servant. He will continue to move us forward and toward a better future. The passion he has for his community and the Commonwealth of Kentucky will be evident for decades to come, and I certainly look forward to seeing what lies ahead for the state because of the accomplishments he has achieved from his work in Frankfort. For that and so much more, I say, “Job Well Done!”
On a personal level, Mike Cherry is one of my truest and dearest friends. He has not only encouraged and motivated me, but through his own works, challenged me to continuously strive for what is best and right for the Commonwealth. For that I am forever grateful.
Mike Cherry has been a Naval Captain, a State Representative, and Chairman of the powerful Kentucky House State Government Committee, with no issue too large for him to grasp and give direction. To say that he is the consummate civic servant would be a drastic understatement. We fellow community members, and the citizens of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, are indebted to him and the work he has done.
Congratulations, my friend!
Fair winds and following seas….
